    Well, of course it is safe to wear implantable contact lenses. First, you should know that there are many people who can not adjust to the laser eye surgery. For them, the implantable contact lenses are a suitable way. And implantable contact lenses are like small contact lens. And they are placed inside the eye instead of sitting on the surface. By wearing them, you can be beneficial for rapid recovery and increased clarity of vision. But on the other hand, they still have some side effects. For example, it should have unavoidable infection. But you do not need worry about it. At the same time, it is possible to damage the structure of the eye, and then maybe lead to Cataracts, Glaucoma, Retinal complications, corneal decomposition and rejection. So you should be careful when wearing them, avoiding infection to your eyes.
